Jessica Alba's Print Pants and Flatforms Look for Less + Cinco de Mayo Sales

Jessica Alba fashion style casual dressy outfit idea featuring black blazer, floral print pants and flatform sandals
Jessica Alba was spotted in a chic black and white ensemble while grabbing lunch in the park with her daughter and their friends in Venice Beach. I love Jessica's style but I think I may have made a few improvements on this outfit...first I found a slim yet soft floral pant with a mostly black background to mimic her wide leg palazzos. I think the slimmer silhouette is easier to wear and the black makes it more flattering. Then I found a flatform sandal with a natural faux wood sole to break up all the black and white in her outfit and give it an organic touch that feels right for summer. I'm especially proud of the satchel and sunnies I found, too, both at Nordstrom by BP and under $50 - they look way more expensive! What do you think, is this a look you'd try? Do you like my edits? Read on to shop the look for less...

The outfit you put together actually looks cuter than Jessica's!

I second the above comment about your look for less outfit---while I usually love Jessica's style, I'm not feeling her pants...but the ones you substituted are so much nicer!

Thanks. Wide legs are everywhere for spring but in this look I think the pants overwhelm her frame.

I like your pants better, but would probably wear this with a white shirt, as everything black is too much black for me.

Good point, white feels lighter for spring too.

I actually liked your version so much more. More slimming, flattering and more stylish too.

Even though I love Jessica Alba's style most of the time, to be honest I don't think this outfit is doing much for her. She should have hired you as her stylist!!
